An underrated record from the end of the Grunge era was the only album by Mad Season called Above. This was a side project by members of Pearl Jam, Alice In Chains, and Screaming Trees. This vinyl version was produced as a double album and featured a minor radio hit, “River of Deceit.”

Now Playing: Pearl Jam’s TEN

In Heavy Rotation this week on my iPod, phone, CD player, or turntable while writing this blog:

 

Pearl Jam Ten

Pearl Jam – Ten
1991

 

Twenty years ago this week…what!?!?! Twenty years? Yes, on March 27, 1991, Pearl Jam began recording their Epic debut, Ten.
 
While Nirvana’s Nevermind was first, I’ve always preferred PJ’s Ten as a much more complete, and overall better album.
 
Give it a listen again you may find that the layered sounds give an even darker feel than you may have remembered. I guess that’s what 20 years of light hip-hop and shiny happy alternative-so-called-rock has done to our popular music palate.
